Woman pronounced dead after Streator home explosion

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2014

After a day of sifting through what was left of a house on Court Street in Streator, investigators are still trying to pinpoint what caused an explosion. The house burst into flames around 10:30pm Monday causing a fire that spread to neighboring homes.

A man living with his elderly mother was able to escape but his mother was not. Ethel Davison was pronounced dead after her body was found Tuesday.  An autopsy is pending.

The Streator Police Department, La Salle County Coroner’s office and the State Fire Marshall’s office are investigating.
